Let the world go by..
Nice warm sound to this board..this run of shows in the fall of 80' has the boys primed and ready go~! It shows in this semi-short but sweet show..solid 1st set and everything is well played, but in the 2nd set the TO LAY ME DOWN really hits my soul~!! I will hold this one up with Lake Placid 83' as one I will go back to it again, along with the sweet Terrapin..GIVE IT A WHIRL>Forever Grateful>Forever Dead
80 doesn't have a lot of sbds in circulation, this one sounds good, Very solid first set, one of the better electric Deep Elems that the Dead performed during the songs appearance in 80-83...second set is highlighted by an outstanding Terrapin Station

Best later day electric Deep Elem's possibly include 3/9/81, 12/7/81, 12/27/81, sweet shows too!
To Lay Me Down is nice here. The Dead sounded good on this swing. Fox is best though. Good jam before drums in Gainesville...

My wife and I (still married now after 31 years) had gone to get a coke, and we heard the music start up . . walked in to the hall just in time to see them sing "we can share the women, we can share the wine" . . . it was a great show . . . . I miss Jerry

Good show for bad accoustic venue
I must have been right next to verylazylightning - I was right up front near the two big microphone stands recording the show. The day after Thanksgiving 1980 - hangin' with some college friends - ahh, seems just like yesterday . . . .

Good Ole Florida Show
I was ten feet away from Garcia for this show,
with Bobby to the right another eight feet. The stage was very low.
Garcia was wearing, unusually, a collared short-sleeved shirt. Sorry to report this, but he kept drooling copiously all during the show ;-) Bob, I remember, had these super-thick Birkenstock-type suede shoes on.
I followed this tour from Miami on up through to
Georgia. I was struck how low-key the boys were physically at this show compared to the Sportatorium just hours before, where Bobby was scampering like crazy all over the stage and Phil
was bopping around in an animated fashion. Actually, they kinda acted real lethargic, but the music was just fine. Sorta like they all took Ritalin.
Acid was in incredibly short supply that night.
I remember people running around everywhere shouting out loud for it. Try doing that nowadays.
Also weird were these little kids that suddenly appeared around our knees, begging for a closer look. We hoisted them on our shoulders and they got a ring-side view of the boys. They said their
parents were way back in the seats and had just let them run up to the front on their lonesome. Shows how incrediblytrusting and mellow the Dead scene was back then.

Ditto.... To Lay Me Down
Sound Quality 4.5 ; Show Quality 4.5. The highlight of this show is my favorite rendition of To Lay Me Down (a song I appreciate with each passing year). The rest of the show is excellant as well.

To Lay Me Down!!!!!
This show is very dear to me, my first real Love affair started during this show. My own recording has a few glitches so when I found this soundboard I knew it was going to be great. Highlights are a Rare Electric Deep Elem Blues in the first set. Killer Feel Like A Stranger second set opener & a first time in a long time Electric To Lay Me Down into a Hot Let It Grow....
looks like rain,apowerhouse version starts with hiss ends with smoke into a lightning deal check it out!!

This show is one of my faves of 1980. Pretty good sound, great playing and setlist. Worth it for 1980 freaks. An emphatic 5 stars.

not the best
i have been going through the whole archive looking for the best electric deep elem...this is not the best...recording seems a bit hissy...and kind of sounds like a 7th gen cassette or something....i only dl'd first song and bob sounded a bit too high too...i'm not going to get this show at this time.....try dl'ing a later song in show and see if it gets any better....back in the days i would have taken it on tape....but with the archive now there is just too many good shows out there...if u r looking for a good electric deep elem...try 3-9-81 msg....thats the best sounding show with an electric deep elem...i tink it may be an aud but well worth it...peace...wait i just dl'd 11-28-80 and there is an electric deep elem on there and show sounds pretty decent - maybe a little hiss but dealable in my opinion

Not sure which is better this or Gainsville because there are some pretty nice and unique features to this too numerous to mention def 5. As an aside there are times when you can tell they are playing to a pretty tripped out crowd and are getting them even more hopped up.
